Steven Cree In A Discovery Of Witches Season 2
Gallowglass De Clermont, in fact, is a member of the De Clermont family. The Scottish actor is playing a vampire and soldier. Cree is, in fact, Matthew’s nephew. The nephew who always follows his uncle Matthew’s footsteps. Purefoy is the founder of the Congregation as well as the commander of the Knights Of Lazarus, Philippe De Clermont. Moreover, James Purefoy will play Philippe De Clermont. He is Matthew’s stepfather.
The gallowglasses are, in fact, foreign warriors. They were a class of elite mercenary warriors who were principally members of the Norse-Gaelic clans of Scotland between the mid 13th century and late 16th century. A description of Gallowglasses from 1600, describes:
“…picked and selected men of great and mighty bodies, crewel without compassion. The greatest force of the battle consisteth in them, choosing rather to dye than to yeelde so that when it comes to handy blows they are quickly slayne or win the field”
The Forestalled Fifth Season Of Outlander
On the other hand, Starz Outlander postponed the release of its 5th season in 2019. The series will, perhaps, return in early 2020. Cree could be the reason behind this delay.
Starz COO Jeffrey Hirsch said at TCA Friday that the filming of Outlander Season 5 at Midhope Castle is canceled. According to him, one of the actors had a beard that couldn’t be removed due to work on another project, but couldn’t be used for Outlander.
